Critic Reviews for Shadow
Every supremely controlled stylistic element of Zhang Yimou's breathtakingly beautiful "Shadow" is an echo of another, a motif repeated, a pattern recurring in a fractionally different way each time.
This is probably the most stunningly beautiful Zhang has made to date.
Like a painting of broad strokes and few defining details, Shadow is as impressionistic as it is theoretically concise.
It's a shame that the film can't reconcile both of these tones, as it could have made for Zhang's best project in years - but at the very least, it's an incredibly watchable, raucous experiment.
Shadow is mostly black and white in design, the costumes and set looking as if they've been dipped in ink. But everything looks surprisingly deep and rich despite the lack of colour.
